The University of Colorado’s Sea Level Research Group decided in May to add 0.3 millimeters — or about the thickness of a fingernail — every year to its actual measurements of sea levels, sparking criticism from experts who called it an attempt to exaggerate the effects of global warming.

This is clearly a politically motivated effort to conform to the global warming agenda.

CU’s argument is that they have to account for rebounding continental shelves due to the melting of glaciers. But glaciers have been melting for ten thousand years and nobody ever felt like measuring sea levels needed to be adjusted by the rate of rebounding continental shelves before.

I call bullshit.
